Debbie Wesson Gibson recently found a storage bin in her attic as she was looking for Christmas decorations. Inside the bin, she found a box of mementos from her senior year of high school, including a graduation card from Roy Moore.
“Happy graduation Debbie,” it read in the now famous slanted cursive handwriting that was also seen in the yearbook of Beverly Young Nelson’s 1977 yearbook. “I wanted to give you this card myself. I know that you’ll be a success in anything you do. Roy.”
The Washington Post reports:
Shortly after the allegations first surfaced, Moore said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity that he did not know Corfman, but that he remembered Gibson as well as Gloria Thacker Deason, who had told The Post that she dated Moore when she was 18. He called each one “a good girl,” and said that he did not remember dating them.
Later, however, Moore backtracked.
“The allegations are completely false. They are malicious. Specifically, I do not know any of these women,” he said.
A couple of days later, he said, ““Let me state once again: I do not know any of these women, did not date any of these women and have not engaged in any sexual misconduct with anyone.”
More from the Post:
“He called me a liar,” said Gibson, who says she not only openly dated Moore when she was 17 but later joined him in passing out fliers during his campaign for circuit court judge in 1982 and exchanged Christmas cards with him over the years. “Roy Moore made an egregious mistake to attack that one thing — my integrity.”
Gibson is not claiming that Moore assaulted her in any way, but rather that she was in a relationship with him when he was assistant district attorney and in his 30s.
